Jordan completes Salt terror cell investigation

Jordan’s State Security Court prosecutor general Col. Fawaz Otoum on Tuesday (November 6th) announced the court had completed its investigation into the so-called Salt Cell case, the Jordan Times reported.

The prosecutor prepared the indictment list in preparation for the trial of 11 suspects, as three of the cell members died when they blew up a building in Salt in which they were hiding.

According to the indictment, the suspects will be tried for manufacturing, possessing and using weapons and explosives in terrorist acts that resulted in the loss of lives, the Jordanian news agency, Petra, reported.

The suspects, whose confessions were aired on national television, had been promoting the ideology of the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS).

They formed a terror cell that plotted to disturb the kingdom’s security.

The list of the indictees included two of the suspects’ wives, who will be standing trial "for failure to report the terrorist activities to authorities".
